Optimistic October Day 10: Blank

Optimistic October: A 31 Days of Writing Challenge at

Sometimes when I sit down to write these posts, I feel like they practically write themselves. Other times, like tonight, I draw a blank. I feel like even just thinking of a subject is one of the most difficult things ever.

Being optimistic doesn’t mean that everything is always going to work out perfectly for you. It doesn’t mean that your brain will always be full of ideas on what to write about, what to make for dinner, and how to do the thirty-five things on your to-do list without going crazy. No, being optimistic means accepting the ups and downs and knowing that sometimes you’re going to be blank. It also means being okay with less-than-perfect postings like this one.

Maybe tomorrow, I will be bitten by the inspiration bug and be able to crank out a fabulous post in no time flat. Or, maybe I won’t be able to think of anything, drawing yet another blank. Either way, I’ll just keep writing and keep improving my skills and keep posting because blankness doesn’t change my optimism; it just makes me want to work a little bit harder.

P.S. On another note, I got all of my Blogger postings imported to this blog yesterday. Yay for finishing another Slack-Free September project, just slightly behind schedule!

I love talking to people! Leave a comment and let's chat!
